Link of the Week – St. Elmo’s Fire

October 10, 2017

How about a fun little mix of science and history for this week’s link?  Here’s a post I wrote for History Undressed on St. Elmo’s Fire—the weather phenomenon, not the coming-of-age movie starring the Brat Pack. Check out why superstitious sailors not afraid of the hissing blue sparks shooting off masts.

Link of the Week – Picking a Lock

October 3, 2017

Because picking a lock is a skill. Useful information for all.

Watch the video or read the article. It’s more great fodder from The Art of Manliness.

Link Of The Week- Survival

September 19, 2017

wilderness-survival-fireI’ve watched a show called The 100 for the last two weeks on Netflix. It’s a good show, but the characters are forced to survive in the wild. Some of the characters in my book do too! This is a good link for basic survival skills. Make sure you read through the questions and answers at the end- there’s a lot of good information there.wilderness-survival-guide-6

That’s your basic set of skills. Do you want to be more like Macgyver? Well, here you go- these are sooooo cool!

Link of the Week – Reading Bourbon Labels

September 12, 2017

This week’s link comes from one of my favorite blogs, The Art of Manliness. And it’s a great link for anyone who likes bourbon. I, myself, went through

a spell of consuming copious amounts of Jim Beam in my youth. Good times…good times…

There are distinctions between the varying types of bourbons. This link, How to Read a Bourbon Label, gives the skinny on bourbon terminology and provides a guide for consumers when buying the next bottle of whiskey. Cheers!

Link Of The Week- Weather Watch

September 5, 2017

the-weather-2

As writers, we often need to know things about the weather for our books. My first published one talked about an “Ice Tsunami”. I had never heard of that phenomena, but I knew I wanted to put it in.Dszpics1

This past week and a half has had weather on all of our minds with Hurricane Harvey. Jenn and I are both proud native Texans and are horrified at the loss our great state has incurred. Now, we have Hurricane Irma barreling down on islands in the Caribbean and will slam into Florida soon. After that? The models have conflicting reports.

Here’s a place for great research and current weather happenings! Stay safe.
